sorry for the confusion. I have an Arriflex 16SB which takes either Arri standard or bayonet lenses. I'm wondering if there are other lenses that can easily be adapted to it. All the adapters I've noticed fit arri mount lens to other cameras. I'm looking for other lenses to the arri body. obviously the lenses would have to be longer FFD than 52mm (IIRC)

Some lenses had removeable rears that allowed different mounts to be fitted, such as Angenieux's 5.9 mm or the various zooms by Cooke and Angenieux that used an intermediate mount, so sometimes one of these can be changed to Arri S or B. The 16mm format Zeiss Super Speeds can be changed from PL to Bayo, which some rental houses might offer. But essentially you're stuck with just using the many lenses that originally come in those first Arri mounts.

thanks for the info. The t mount is an interesting idea. I remember there were lots of lenses back in the day, but their performance is probably not very good. I think tamron made t mount.
I was actually hoping some of the russian lenses would work so I'll look further into that.

You can adapt Hasselblad lenses to Arriflex.
Of course, you'll be limited to longer focal length lens. The widest angle is 40mm I think.
Visual Products has an adapter for sale.
For the price, you can't go wrong.

that's cool. Too bad I sold all my Hassy lenses a few years ago.
